If you Y axis accelerates with a high velocity, the springs will compress and eat your accuarcy. This design could do the job, if the spring would provide a pretension to the belt and the whole slider could be countered with screws.

It's true and it's something I've bear in mind with the design. Anyway, in the second version I add some improvement in this regard, especially avoiding the springs can yield.
Thanks for the comment and advice!
